Water Filter Type on Cedar Creek

Ok I have the water filter on the rig and I didn't write it down the model of the filter when I threw it out last year - anyone have the right make/model of the filter or is it based on some standard ??

Mine was also labeled on the clear bowl of the filter housing. Mine was a Pure water filter.

Hope this helps

38FL Water filter stuck.....

Time to change the filter in our 6mo old 38FL. So I took the handy-dandy supplied filter wrench and made some grunting noises - but the darned thing would NOT budge. So I removed the mounting screws and went at it with two filter straps (one on the cup and the other on the filter housing) and twisted them in opposite - again with the required grunting sounds. After several more attempts, I put everything back, added an in-line filter and stopped using what I was told was "inappropriate language".......

I am now at the point of replacing the entire assembly, but I want to be sure I've exhausted all remedies known to the collective. HELP!!

Thanks for the reply, Youroo

Yep, had the water off, kitchen fixture open.....after a fellow camper saw me struggling and advised me that the filter wouldn't budge under pressure

Ours is very difficult to remove but one hand on top of the bracket and one on the wrench it does give in.

Sometimes you have to tighten something and then it will come loose. Strange science, I know, but it works.

Ours comes off somewhat easy, but I plan to get rid of it all together as soon as I can slow down enough to cut / splice. To me it's in the way, and I'd rather have the filter assembly that I want.
